  1. A vet actually told me that freshly shot fibre are worse for livestock as they can swell in the stomach/bowel but they would need a few to cause any serious injury. In both cases they generally pass through unfaultered. Another issue which I was told about last year was M&S Green Veg, all UK grown crops Sprouts, Cabbage, Lettuce, Kale, Cauliflower are passed through a metal detector if any gunshot is found in the crop from that field the whole field of crop will be rejected by M&S! Nothing about wads. Nothing about Steel or Lead. Just shot!
  2. Plas wad where I can. Lets be honest this is pigeon watch a dedicated pigeon shooting site. We have been using plas wads for over 50 years where are these piles of wads all over the land? Well you shoot pigeons over arable land so they get ploughed in. Gone. You shoot grouse on a moor it gets burnt. Gone You shoot pigeons and game in a wood, the leaves come down bury the wads. Gone Clay grounds are getting more like lawns because they can run over the areas with lawnmowers and collect the wads! As for clean kills you don't get better kills with fibres. But things are now finally getting better. I hear Gamebore have a revolutionary announcement coming very soon!

    Storing Cartridges in the loft

    I use these under a pallet my carts sit on. https://www.toolstation.com/dimplex-thermostatic-tubular-heater-ipx4/p34409?r=googleshopping&rr=marin&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=CjwKCAiAqOriBRAfEiwAEb9oXUmcI-oXoYFuEoDUBbaOH3GxUd8BfMaBqX3Eq7v3ZN0eNW7kIIPZfxoC8mUQAvD_BwE

    Tight whore, get to Pentland and spend a bit of that huge salary you earn on a decent 2nd hand newish disco! Least you'll be safer taking out the kids in it!

    End of Season Near Miss

    Managed to get an exhaust bandage from Halfords today after a bit of tapping I managed to to get rid of the sharp edges so it would stick. Got some duck tape for the fore-end so should be good for the pigeons tomorrow packed some gun gum in case the patch doesn't hold!

    The gun is heading to Birmingham on Tuesday, fantastic service from Bryan at Malmo for organising it all!

    Yes mate my new fore-end I'm gutted 😂 It split right on the line my thumb was holding! Strong hands holding in that pressure! I sat down for a couple of minutes then went back to the truck for the other MK38 shot the next 4 without a blip, using the same cartridges. I actually ended up shooting better that I was with this gun too. It was the talk of the shoot at Whitfield yesterday I believe! Also put a ticket on the Euro lottery last night, I woke up to an email this morning to say I had an important message in my National lottery account, indeed I was a winner £2.90 Get in!

    best size chamber on fibre

    Sounds exactly how Nigel explained it last week wouldn't be surprised if the information and testing had come directly from Nigel Teague!

    yes that is a plas wad caught at the burst! Cartridge manufacturer has been informed and are leading the investigation!

    Barrel was clear at start of drive, I check chokes and barrel at the start of every drive!

    best size chamber on fibre

    yes it does, was with Nigel Teague last week, both chamber size and bore make a big difference to fibre. The ideal combination is 2 3/4 chamber for 2 3/4 shell and 18.3 or 18.4 bore. Anything else in his own personal findings can lead to losing up to 25% of the power of the cartridge.

    End of Season Near Miss

    Well the season finished at Whitfield for me yesterday. After the 1st drive and a few nice shots taken we lined out for the 2nd drive, 3 single shots 3 kills to start the drive. Then a woodcock which I clipped with the 1st so I swung to finish it off with the 2nd barrel. I won't ever forget that 2nd shot shot, the flash the bang and the sharp pain in my thumb and the ringing in my ears. The pain was probably the fore-end clipping my thumb knuckle as it split off as I still have all my fingers, thumb and eyesight. Yes I'm very lucky and thankfully have a high hold on my fore-end. No conclusion to why as yet, barrels being sent to the proof house next week. No shot blew from the side, no blockage to barrel before the drive started and barrels clear after with no damage anywhere else up the barrel. 20g cartridge 99% ruled out. Barrel fatigue, or twisted wad are the 2 serious lines of thought. It's a 7 year old Miroku MK38. Thankfully I was able to continue the drive and the day as my other MK38 was in the truck which was a short walk away! Nothing I think I have done has contributed to this outcome but we will wait for the proof house for their report! Stay safe everyone!

    It has been in their plans Scully to do it, obviously either by moving some traps positions or by putting up a screen of some form to protect you from falling shot. Must be best part of 1Km to the Skeet stand from the office and the same back, which is also next to the last sporting stand. 1st time I was there I took my 3 kids, they were not impressed with the walk back after shooting most of the sporting stands especially as I'd told them we were getting closer to the end and the car! Whoops!

    Shot it a few times and a couple of comps, very good ground. Just wish they would connect the path to make the full loop! For anyone who struggles with mobility they do have golf buggies you can hire too.
